look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

750 mL bottle poured into a wine glass.

Appearance - Murky and hazy orange. Medium white head. Lots of lacing and a thick collar.

Smell - Stone fruits and some citrus. Some wine barrel. Lots of yeast. A bit of a mineral character.

Taste - Stone fruit and more wine flavor. Pale malt is stronger here. Yeasty and pushing a bit sweet before the finish. Mineral character is strong and it has kind of a rotten fruit flavor in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Medium body. Not as light as I was expecting. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Not as impressed as I normally am by Side Project saisons. It's got a weird aftertaste.
